Christine Island is an island 0.9 km (0.5 nmi) long which lies 1.9 km (1 nmi) off the south coast of Anvers Island and 2.8 km (1.5 nmi) southeast of Bonaparte Point. The name of Christine Island was proposed by the United States Antarctic Research Program (USARP) biologist Dietland Müller-Schwarze after his wife Christine Müller-Schwarze, who studied Adélie penguins with him on the island in 1971–1972.
